Summertime is almost here and with it comes the sunshine and sweltering heat! There are many ways we can cool down in the summertime but nothing quite compares to a hidden swimming hole.
If you're looking for a refreshing day trip from Toronto you should travel to Flesherton, Ontario to find what they call the 'Grey County's best-kept secret' which is Hogg's Falls. The scenic Hogg's Falls Loop is just a short 1.4 km hike that will lead you to this hidden waterfall swimming hole!
You can find Hogg's Falls just a short 2-hour drive from Toronto. It's open during the summer and winter months and is honestly just as breathtaking covered in fluffy snow and ice. When you hike down the 1.4 km trail you'll discover the rushing waterfall and a path with a rope leading down to the bottom where a refreshing pool of water awaits!
Hogg's Falls is located in Grey County which actually has 10 different waterfalls to visit, one of the most popular being Eugenia Falls. You can also access the infamous Bruce Trail from the Hogg's Falls loop if you want to extend your hiking adventure and see some bright blue waters!
This trail can also be extended to reach Eugenia Falls if you follow some of the signage on the trail! Hogg's Falls isn't very big, only 25 metres in height but it's perfect for a refreshing dip on a hot summers day and it's a great spot to explore and appreciate the great province of Ontario.
The trail to the falls sometimes floods due to rain in the summer so make sure you check for updates on the Grey County website before heading out on your trip!
